English Premiership

Tipsters: Gunners can’t keep City blank!

2017-11-03 11:33

Cape Town - Free-scoring leaders Manchester City are unlikely to be too daunted at home by Arsenal’s questionable defence in their “Super Sunday” clash.

Take this weekend's EPL Sport24 BET Boost!

On a day that features another glamour Premiership tussle, between slightly stuttering champions Chelsea and Manchester United, our tipsters overwhelmingly feel the City strike force will do enough to secure all three points against Arsene Wenger’s inconsistent charges.

But it is also predicted for the most part that the Red Devils, with Jose Mourinho quite likely to “park the bus” against his old club in London, will experience a dour stalemate.

Each round of the latest Premiership campaign, a group of our staff has a crack at predicting the results - do the exercise yourself, if you like, and see how you compare afterwards.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct scoreline, and one for right result.
